I will so be lucky if I can walk tomorrow. Lots of leg work today plus a moment of insanity where I tried to do the FitnessBlender 1000 calorie workout. I say tried, because I quit 24 mins 7 secs in.

This workout took slightly longer than it should since I had to tried to find an alternative to the Swiss ball 45-degree back extension. I wasn't able to come up with one so I just left it out.

I'm definitely exhausted at this point.
Today's intake looks a bit better than yesterdays in terms of calories, but my protein is really low today.
I might add another 100 calories with a little snack before bed.
Well that's pretty much my day overview, but there was another thing I did want to touch on. Loose skin. I have it and well, I'll be honest, I hate it.
I've lost just over 130 lbs and loose skin is pretty much unavoidable at this point. I do realize that I was lucky. It's definitely not near as bad as it could have been. I give credit to my age and genetics for that. It does bother me though and I know that I'm either going to have to learn to accept it or get surgery. I did want to share some pictures of my loose skin. Why? I want to be open and honest about it. My clothes, even my bikini, are able to hide it. I don't want people to look at these pictures and think that by some miracle I actually lost 130 lbs without any loose skin.
So here's me in my home workout outfit:
Looks pretty normal.
Now lets just roll down the pants a bit:
In the bottom right, I'm in a plank position.
So as you can see, it's there. When I'm a little leaner (closer to the 120's) it's thinner, but still looks like a balloon that lost all it's air.
But as I also said before, I'm pretty lucky in that it could have been much worse than it is.
